Why You’ll Love Caviar Egg Toast

You know I am obsessed with egg yolks and caviar, and these turned out delicious! That first bite is heaven on earth.. You get the runny yolk and the saltiness from the caviar. The toasties bring that crunchiness and mmm chef’s kiss!

Caviar Egg Toast

How To Prepare Caviar Egg Toast

πŸ§‚ First, combine the sugar and salt.

🌟 Secondly, add half of the mixture to a small container. Then, make an indentation per every yolk.

πŸ₯š Place the yolks over the sugar/salt and sprinkle the rest on top.

❀️ Cover in plastic wrap. Then, cure in the fridge for 2-6 hours. I did 3 hours because I wanted them very jammy.

πŸ’§ Then, rinse each yolk VERY carefully.

πŸ”₯ Place the yolks in a clean container and add the warm/hot olive oil on top. Then, let them sit 20-30 minutes. I do this to warm them up and add some richness.

🧈 In a heat pan add some butter and olive oil. Then, fry the bread until golden.

🍳 Lastly, add one yolk to each toast. Then, top with chives and a lot of caviar.

Substitutions and Variations

  1. There aren’t really substitutions for this recipe. You don’t have to top with chives if you don’t want to, or you can use any herbs you have on hand.
  2. You can use any bread of choice, I used normal sandwich bread.

Chef Nadia’s Tip

Careful is the key when handling the yolks.
